No matter how hard I try mistakes still occur,
for there’s only one thing I know for sure.
I am only Human, as We all are.
We strive so hard for perfection,
banging our heads against an invisible brick wall daily.
No matter what changes we make it will still come back to one fact.
Our nature is to be imperfect, flawed, and stumbling.
We struggle like rats in a maze
all reaching for that one shiny gold ring,
when instead we should direct our focus on being kind to each other.
No matter whether we’re related by blood, or not,
we’re all sisters and brothers.
Despite the prejudices, and hatred, that too many allow to sink into our souls,
ultimately we all have the same goals.
We all deal daily with the cruel game that Fate plays with our Lives,
the one that leaves us wondering why we should bother with the struggle at all.
Instead of pushing someone aside to reach your own goals,
next time reach out a caring hand,
and share a smile or a kind word.
Your small kindness could be the one thing that keeps them from an untimely fall.
We are all struggling through this Life.
In one way, or another, we all face strife.
Remember this next time you feel abrasive words escaping your lips,
for your choice – harsh or kind – can mean the difference
between a good day, or bad day,
for that one you encountered.
While it’s true we all have our own lives to concentrate on,
still it only takes a brief moment to show kindness to another.
It’s not easy, but try to not let your own struggles overwhelm
you so that you forget that you’re not the only one;
you’re not the only one facing struggles, worries, and strife.
We are all human,
and We have only this one Life to live.
Let’s try to make it a better one
by being kind to each other,
and always remembering to give.
